Default Hong Kong Hotel Advice, Please

Hi, all.

We (my 78-year-old father and I, fairly agile 49-year-old paraplegic
manual wheelchair user) will be in Hong Kong post-cruise in early June
for three nights. Any thoughts as to possible accommodation? Shuttles
from the hotel to Kowloon, etc. preferred.

TIA.

There is a Holiday Inn in Kowloon. Had lunch and drinks there. Don't
remember the name of the hotel I stayed at, but it was very close to the
Holiday Inn.

You are very brave to maneuver around H.K. in a wheel chair! The
sidewalks are very crowded with people and if you don't walk fast, you
get pushed along like cattle!

We used the Salisbury hotel and it is only a couple of blocks from Ocean
terminal. It is owned and operated by the YMCA and has a very good rate
for Hong Kong. We did see one wheel chair but really don't know how
easy or hard it was for them as it was a pretty stout guy pushing a
fairly small woman.
